About

Uniquely created

GMAN Construction, LLC was created through a lifetime of engineering and design knowledge of its founder Govind Nadkarni. Listening to the needs of his clients, he set out to assemble a construction team that redefine customer expectations.

We’ve created that company with the client in mind. We started with reviewing the critical safety issues that all construction firms face and developed our safety culture first. Before one field employee was brought on, the company had assessed, defined and reviewed the elements necessary to send people to the field, intending to bring every one home at the end of the day.

GMAN has focused on being the best firm within its niche. We assess each opportunity individually, checking it against our ability to perform, deliver and realize our commitment to Safety, Health and the Environment.

Vision

To become the leading construction company in every locale that we operate. We will investigate and pursue opportunities where our capabilities provide us with the greatest value and develop strategies to exceed the expectations of our partners and clients.

 

Mission Statement

Our business activities reflect the high caliber of our personnel. We intentionally have developed and fully embrace a culture where Safety, Health and the Environment is as important as all business activities. Our culture revolves around pride in our delivery, having fun and living by our values. Those values are integrity, entrepreneurship, diversity, quality and respect. Exceeding expectations, being profitable and results-oriented are our hallmark traits.
